The New Thought movement (not to be confused with New Age) is more than century-old. It is a practical-oriented discipline that promotes the fullness of living through constructive thinking, meditating, and other ways of realizing the presence of God. New Thought began in the 19th-century in the United States. Its initial emphasis was on physical healing, and quickly broadened to include healing of all aspects of imbalance in the life of individuals. New Thought has no single creed, but its basic premise is that God is All There Is, and that everything, including all individuals, is an expression of that One Thing.
